    I have recently started using Firefox vs. Safari, for a few reasons. There is only one thing about it that I don't like/can't figure out. In Safari I often open links in new windows by hitting Apple + Mouse Click, and it would open the link that I clicked on in a new window. In Safari, it opens up in a new tab.. is there any way I can set it to open in a new window (or disable tabs all together?) I already set new pages to open in new windows, but this only works when I hit Apple + N. Any ideas?

    Im confused by your question
    1. if u were asking about "how to open a new window while keep firefox's default single window mode",=> try click link while press shift key
    2. if u were asking about "how to use multi window mode instead of single window mode in firefox", set it up in preference panel
    3. most firefox's extension/themes are cross-platform.

    Sounds like you found what you need, but Tab Killer is a Firefox extension. It installs fine in Firefox 2 on my PPC Mac....

    Another good Tab extension is TabMixPlus

    I find it an absolute necessary Firefox extension.
